I didn’t mean to skip a What I Ate Wednesday post yesterday but I hadn’t taken one picture of what I have been eating since the weekend so there went that.
Something inside of me has clearly changed because I am no longer the winter loving New Yorker that I used to be.
Winter was always my favorite time of year – between the chilly air, Hanukkah and hockey season, I could never get enough!
These days however, rather than enjoy the season, I am busy counting down the days to March while walking around constantly cold and annoyed by the weather.
Things are only made better when a) I am wrapped up in my blanket b) I carry around a hot mug of tea.
Yogi Tea’s Kava Stress Relief is my tea flavor of choice. It’s a decaf tea which works really well for me as caffeinated teas tend to make me dizzy.
I think I refilled my mug yesterday with hot water a good four times before noon!
And the cute little messages that Yogi Tea gives me are nice too.
Yesterday’s tea message was “what belongs to you will come to you” < – I like that.
We are leaving for Disney World today!!
The weather is looking nice in Orlando (80’s!) and my friends will be in Disney too so we are really excited for this trip.
Oh yeah, and Hanukkah begins at sundown on Christmas Eve! It’s always nice when Hanukkah is later in December and falls around Christmas so the fa la la feeling lingers for us along with everyone else.
My plans for posting over the next few days is a bit undecided.
I want to pop in with a few pictures to say hi at least once while we are away but Disney World, as you may know, is so much fun but also SO TIRING that typing up a post may not happen so fast.
Please follow me on Instagram where I will do my best to share our fun and of course, what we are eating (desserts!!).
As for my workouts, I will use the hotel gym (it’s a really nice one!!) but I cap my vacation workouts at 30-40 minutes tops. There won’t be a long run for me this week and I am more than okay with the break! I sometimes think that Disney World walking is a lot harder on me than running 13 miles.
On This Day:
12/22/14: Chocolate Bar Blondies < – Ironically, I shared this recipe for chocolate bar blondies two years ago today which was also the day we left for Disney World in 2014!
If I don’t speak to you before the weekend, have a very Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas!Hot tea & leaving for Disney!! #thinkingoutloud #Disneyworld #yogitea #winter #vacation #Disney Click To Tweet
